UT mascot diagnosed with cancer

Local News

The beloved mascot at the University Of Texas, “Bevo the 14th” is retiring after being diagnosed with bovine leukemia.

The long-horn steer, whose given name is “sunrise studly,” started as mascot in 2004 at the tender age of two.

For 11 years, he’s been a sideline fixture at football games and other events, including president George W. Bush’s second inauguration.

Bevo will rest on a ranch owned by his caretakers, who also owned his predecessor, Bevo the XII.

The school hopes to find a successor for the mascot by Thanksgiving 2016, the 100th anniversary of Bevo’s first appearance.
